Other refuge have I none— Hangs my helpless soul on Thee.Posted on 04/16/11, 02:41 am
Till the storm of life is past;
Safe into the haven guide,
O receive my soul at last!
Other refuge have I none—
Hangs my helpless soul on Thee.
Leave, ah, leave me not alone;
Still support and comfort me!
All my trust on Thee is stayed—
All my help from Thee I bring.
Cover my defenseless head
With the shadow of Thy wing.
Thou, O Christ, art all I want,
More than all in Thee I find.
Raise the fallen, cheer the faint,

Mat 22:14 "For many are called, but few are chosen." NLT
Mat 22:14 For many are called, but few are chosen. KJV
Mat 22:12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
THIS ARE VERSE ABOUT THE PARABLE OF THE WEDDING FEAST. EVERYONE HAD TO HAVE A WEDDING GARMENT ON THAT WAS PROVIDED BY THE FATHER OF THE GROOM.
THIS IS A PICTURE OF SALVATION. GOD HAS INVITED US TO BE SAVED AND IF WE SAY YES GOD PUTS ON THE ROBE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS. THEN THERE WAS THIS ON MAN WHO DECIDED HE DID NOT NEED A ROBE PROVIDED FREE BY THE FATHER. HE FELT HIS ROBE WAS MORE IF NOT BETTER THAN THE FREE ROBE OFFERED HIM. THIS IS A PICTURE OF A MAN WHO THINKS HIS WORKS ARE SUFFICIENT FOR GOD.
THEN WE HAVE THE VERSE FOLLOWING V.12.
Mat 22:13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
ELLEN, YOU WERE CALLED AND CHOSEN. AS A CHOSEN ONE YOUR HAVE CHOSE TO ACCEPT THE ROBE OF RIGHTEOUSNES THROUGH JESUS.
